Here I am with around 1,500 shots from our Canada cruise. At some point they will move to a backup drive and disappear. There’s got to be a better way to use them?
“Make a poster,” Helaine said.
I’ve done this before. Using nine or ten of my best shots and a little Photoshop magic I can fashion a 16″ x 24″ poster. The finished product looks like something you’d buy in a store, except it’s our photos!
The process takes a little forethought, but not a whole lot of skill. It’s a series of repetitive steps to get each image the correct size with border effects and drop shadow then properly place it on a grid. It took under an hour start-to-finish.
This is a reduced resolution version to squeeze onto the Internet. The real poster file is 7200 by 4800 pixels or 34.56 Megapixels!
